What channel is Man United vs Leeds United on? TV info, live stream details, kick-off and more

The excruciatingly long wait for the return of competitive football ends this weekend when Leeds United travel to Old Trafford to face Manchester United.

The opening weekend of the Premier League season always sparks intrigue and a clash between old rivals is certain to have tails wagging.

Leeds were on the receiving end of a humiliating 6-2 drubbing when they last visited Old Trafford but managed to hold the Red Devils to a 0-0 draw at Elland Road in April.

Both sides will be desperate to make a positive start to the new campaign and the presence of both home and away supporters is almost certain to add spice to the encounter.
